Seeding a 3-m Pass at 10.6 mph: The Espro Minimum Tillage Drill

Espro 6000 R

Kuhn Farm Machinery’s Espro — an implement as quaint as a London flat — will officially be welcomed to agriculture in the United Kingdom during Cereals 2015 this June.

The Espro is a minimum tillage, low horsepower-demand drill that comes in two models thus far: the 3000 and the 6000 R. Both are Isobus compatible, with 6″ seed row spacing, working at speeds ranging from 4.3 to 10.6mph (that’s 17 kmh, of course). Where they differ is their size. The Espro 3000 is an unbelievable 3m wide, while the 6000 R hits 6m. But perhaps even more impressive than its size, is how it’s promoted:

The ESPRO 3000 and 6000 R will be available in limited quantities in the United Kingdom this summer. It is unclear whether or not it will be available to North America (perhaps for fear of predation by other, slightly larger seeders), but we know a few producers who would love to get their hands on one of these wee machines.
